Although it has been more than 80 years since Brave New World’s publication, Huxley’s questions of disillusionment, cynicism, and the juxtaposition of scientific fact and the unknown fiction of future life on earth, remain more dynamic and alive than ever. Nobrow 7: Brave New World is a bold commentary on the momentous novel, boasting a list of artists that is jaw dropping in its range and scope.
With contributions from a group of artists that reads like the guest-list of an illustration/ comics super-festival: Jillian Tamaki (Indoor Voice, Drawn & Quarterly), Luke Pearson (Hilda and the Midnight Giant, Nobrow), Joost Swarte (Is That All There Is?, Fantagraphics), Tom Gauld (Goliath, D&Q), Anders Nilsen (Big Questions, D&Q), Joseph Lambert (Winner of Ignatz award categories for ‘Outstanding Anthology or Collection’ and ‘Outstanding Artist’ awards for I Will Bite You), Andrew Rae, Rob Bailey, Henry McCauseland, Eda Akaltun, Domitille Collardey, Michael DeForge and many, many more, Nobrow 7 will exceed your expectations beyond measure.
Like all Nobrow releases, detailing is always superb, as Nobrow 7 will contain a double cover with illustrations by Sam Vanallemeersch, making it two magazines rolled into one.
Nobrow 7 is slated for a September release, beginning what is sure to be a fall of exceptional releases.
